This is the greatest Traviata ever recorded! Period! Callas was in top-form then, as was Bastianini and di Stefano! A glorious performance on all accounts! Bravi!

This is the top choice for a recording of La Traviata. It's caught live in La Scala's greatest time, when La Scala was ruled by La Divina who had her greatest year in 1955. Enjoy the Traviata of the century!

This is my favourite recording of La Traviata. Callas and di Stefano are absolutely glorious! This is a performance from a time when La Scala was still LA SCALA! Enchanting!

This Traviata is a legend. So much has been written about it, what can I add to it except that I love it? The comparisons with Pasta and Malibran are absolutely alright, and Callas has NO need to be "put in a good light". Callas is a great artist in her own right. This Traviata will tell you why she is still revered. But also listen to other great Divas, I have about 50 Traviatas and I still need more! Enjoy this performance with Maria Callas at the peak of her vocal powers.

This was my second Callas-recording. I bought it right after I listened to her Butterfly. And I wasn't sorry at all! Callas truly deserves the title La Divina. And that is my opinion!

There are so many great reviews here written much better than mine (Emilia, I always enjoy what you write) so I'll just say that this is my favourite Traviata. :-)

All I can say is that us Callas-fans have had a lot of patience with this childish, tasteless basher. We have let Sills and Sutherland and whoever alone and never harmed any of them. But if he continues to bash our diva he'll get it from us! We Callas-Fans are mumerous and won't have Maria abused for mud-fights! This Traviata is gorgeous and has had a lot of success since its release, the production and the singers were adored likewise when La Scala offered it in the fifties. I love Callas, I admit it. But I also love other singers. And if this narrow-minded basher won't stop abusing Maria his divas will get it from us. Last warning!
